Support The Hatlen Center

Your Gift Will Help Us Change Lives Forever

By supporting The Hatlen Center, you can make a big difference in another person’s life. Our students live in their own apartments, pay their own bills out of their own income, cook their own meals, and take charge of their own lives. Your support will ensure that our students continue to receive world-class training using a wide variety of adaptive equipment, from talking microwaves to the latest Personal Digital Assistants. At The Hatlen Center we adhere to the philosophy that blind people can live independent, fulfilling lives, and we expect our students to reach their full potential. Our program empowers people to choose their own future. The Hatlen Center’s innovative and effective learning model works. It changes lives forever.
